You will likely remember that on May 6, 2016, the government announced a $90 million investment to further enable the development of community hubs. CLICK HERE for announcement.
The May 6, 2016 announcement detailed that the province will provide:
- $20 million to create space for new child care and child and family support programs through Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres in schools
- $18 million to retrofit existing child care space within a school to open up more spaces for children under four years old
- $50 million to renovate surplus school space to make it available for use by community partners and the public
In the Spring 2016, the school boards and CMSM/DSSABs received additional information on the $20 million and $18 million investments.
And now in Fall 2016, the school boards have received additional information on the $50 million investment. CLICK HERE for details.
